About mapcardcollector...

I have been collecting map postcards for almost 50 years and have a large collection but I am always trying to add to it. As well as postcards my interests include languages, travelling and trams. I have published a number of cards of trams and tram routes which I would be happy to swap.

I would prefer to receive cards with maps on them but, of course, I am happy to receive any card that you send. I do not really like handmade cards so please save them for someone who appreciates them.

Japanese postcrossers: I have completed my collection of Gotochi cards so I am not asking to be sent these cards. I know they are expensive to buy and mail. However, if you have a Gotochi mini card that you could put in an envelope that would be wonderful.

Postcrossers in Taiwan: I collect the Milu Design shape cards. I would love to receive any of the following cards (unused in their plastic cover):
Taipei 101 (at night), Taichung, Tainan, Taitung, Changhua, Kaohsiung (Dome of Light), Kinmen, Butterfly. I will happily send you something in return.

Ukrainian postcrossers: If you have a map card by Oleksy Pyliov I would love to have one. I have Kyiv and Kharkiv so far.

Expired cards? Around 3% which means 97% arrive!
No point listing them as they are usually to people who have dropped out of Postcrossing.

Loving Travel Mode; so far I have sent cards from FR, IE, TH, NZ, SG, NL, DE, BE, IT, JP, FI and AX.

Several people have asked about my profile picture. It is a statue of the poet John Betjeman at St. Pancras International station in London. There are various quotes from him set in the floor. My favourite is:

"Imprisoned in a cage of sound
Even the trivial seems profound"

I usually register cards as soon as they arrive so if I haven't registered it I haven't received it.
